Gift Message Inspiration
Sometimes picking out the right gift package is only half the battle – figuring out what to say in the gift message can feel like a daunting task. How to convey the depth of your hope for your friend or family member’s wellbeing without sounding overly worried, trite, or flippant can feel like an impossibly tricky writing assignment. We’re here to help!
Whether you are looking for a light and casual tone or intimate and emotional message, there is no wrong way to tell your friends or family that you care. Below are a few examples that we like a lot. Feel free to copy/paste directly, or simply use as inspiration for your own words.
1) Tone: Warm, Caring
I'm sending you this care package as a reminder that you're loved and cared for. Cancer can be tough, but I hope this package brings a smile to your face. Remember, you're not alone in this. I'm sending you all my love and positive vibes.
2) Tone: Confident, Funny
I just wanted to send you a care package to let you know that I'm thinking of you and sending all my love and support your way. I know that going through cancer treatment can be tough, but I also know that you are one of the strongest, most resilient people I know.
If you get bored, how about trying this little game: every time you take a sip of your tea or water, take a moment to imagine that you're taking a shot of your favorite tequila or whiskey. Just think, you're saving money on drinks AND avoiding a hangover at the same time!
Sending you lots of love and virtual hugs,
3) Tone: Personal, Emotional
I hope that these gifts bring you some comfort and joy during a difficult time. And remember, I'm always here for you - whether you need someone to vent to or just someone to sit with in silence.
4) Tone: Cheerful, Encouraging
I heard you're kicking cancer's butt, so I thought I'd send you a little care package to help you keep that butt-kicking momentum going. Stay strong, keep fighting, and know that I'm cheering you on every step of the way.
Love and hugs,
5) Tone: Upbeat, Casual
Just a little something to remind you that you are loved and supported. I've included some goodies to help make your days a little brighter - think of it as a survival kit for kicking cancer's butt!
Sending you lots of love and good vibes,
6) Tone: Warm, Inspiring
I just wanted to send you a little something to let you know that I'm thinking of you and sending all my love and support your way. I know that undergoing cancer treatment is no easy feat, but I also know that you are one of the strongest and bravest people I know. Your strength and resilience inspire me, and I know that you will come out of this even stronger.
Sending you all my love and virtual hugs from afar,
7) Tone: Comforting, Intimate
I just wanted to reach out and send you all of my love and support as you undergo your cancer treatments. Be strong when you want. It’s okay to not be strong too. You aren’t required to be anyone’s cancer hero.
Sending you lots of love and hugs,
